Concerto for piano and wind ensemble
MetadataShow full item record
Concerto for Piano and Wind Ensemble is a 16-minute work for piano and winds, brass, and percussion. Although piano is my primary instrument, I have written relatively little for it. With this piece I sought to write a work in the vein of the Romantic and early Twentieth Century piano concerto repertoire, which I listened to and absorbed as a young musician, but with a more contemporary harmonic language. Rather than using the traditional orchestra as the accompanying ensemble, I chose the wind ensemble, which has a limited concerto repertoire, giving me the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to its literature.
